I have been reading a book History of A Suicide I know, a little light reading right?? Well, anyway it is interesting and discusses the impact of suicide on a family. Of course the young girl who took her life was actively using drugs and alcohol. I am wondering if she had had effective SA treatment, would she have taken her own life? Clearly she had mental health and emotional issues her whole life, but probably if she had been clear headed she would have been able to function and think more clearly.I think her drug use initially masked her pain, but in the end just exacerbated it. How many people do you think commit suicide due to addiction?
